Space NK has appointed Andy Lightfoot as its new chief executive.

Lightfoot will report to former chief executive and newly-appointed executive chairman Chris Garek.

Lightfoot joined the luxury beauty retailer as group digital director back in October 2016.

“Andy’s drive and determination coupled with his leadership skills in his new role of CEO will enable Space NK UK and US to demonstrate itself as a leading omnichannel and customer centric retailer,” Garek said.

“Retail is increasingly competitive, but we are bucking the trend of the high street as we continue to open stores in both the UK and US and deliver ahead of market growth online.”

Space NK currently has 69 stores across the UK and Ireland as well as 41 locations in the US.
